Mr. Rogers "talks" to children to explain how special they are and what family means.
If you've ever seen Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, you'll hear his voice in the text. He chose a comfortable, positive way to reassure the child and to encourage discussion. It also hits points about kid's thinking & behavior that have nothing to do with adopt
This isn't a storybook and, compared to other kids books, will feel more clinical/sterile.
This has been available to our preschooler to pull from the bookshelf since she was two (and recognized Mr. Rogers). It wasn't until age three that she started asking us to read it, and we get a request every several months. Now, at 4 we get some basic questions.
Although focused on the family, it is more direct in its approach to describing families than many stories. This is best saved for when parents/kids are ready to talk about adoption and adoption-related issues. Three may be a little young.
A good book for sharing with elementary-level kids. This isn't a story, it's a book designed to explain, provide comfort and encourage family discussion.
You can use this book as a starting point for talking about family. It isn't a textbook, but it is designed to be a teaching tool.

Started reading with 3-year-old child.
Borrow it. It's a book you'll likely only read a few times.
